Our used stuff still has value but it too often ends up in landfills or contaminating our recycling.
But you might not have time to figure out the best way to get rid of your stuff or time to drop it off.
Starting at $10 per month, we pick up your stuff and make sure it is either locally reused or sustainably recycled. We commit to being the best way to get rid of your stuff.
We provide you with bags to store your batteries, light bulbs, plastic film, and threads. These are your core categories and can be picked up every two weeks.
Keep them in your laundry room, kitchen pantry, or wherever is best for you. That's delightful decluttering.
There are five categories we take every pickup: the four core categories plus the rotating fifth category.
If any of your bags are full or you have something from the rotating category, opt-in to your pickup and put it in your Ridwell bin!
The bin is weather-proof and we won't take anything by mistake!
On your Ridwell pickup day, we'll come by to empty your bin and leave your bags in your bin. Your stuff will go to sustainable recyclers or local reuse partners.
Rest assured that your stuff is being given a new life and stays out of the landfill.
We thoroughly vet and only partner with local organizations that are committed to reuse and sustainability.
The rotating fifth category changes every pickup and is inspired by customer demand—like latex paint—or local need—like winter coats.
We find special partners for less common or particularly hard-to-recycle items that can go to a better place.
We pick up from your porch, so you don't have to remember yet another thing. And you don't even have to be there.
We bring your items to places where they will have grateful owners or another life as something new. Baby clothes meet a new baby. Styrofoam becomes picture frames.
Our story began with a father and son trying to do the right thing with dead batteries and seeing how hard it was.
This turned into Owen’s List, a large community of people in Seattle sharing new ideas and making a difference one pickup at a time.
